Description
The half-hour documentary, A Cyber-Tale of Three Cities, takes three youngsters - a boy in Manila (The Philippines), a boy in Fortaleza (Brazil) and a girl in Beirut (Lebanon) and shows them exploring particular urban issues facing their home cities. Chatting to each other over the Internet, and using computer visual imagery to simulate their cities, they identify pressing issues in the urban environment around them. They discover that the solutions being found to the problems of their cities were recognized by HABITAT II - the United Nations City Summit - and could help to improve living conditions in cities around the world.
